The blind,The deaf,The dumb

We make mockery their fates
Knowing that mishaps have no dates
Priding ourselves in our states
We fail to see our dirty slates

But I see their smile and ask why
Understanding their language,I try
In true innocence ,they do fly
As on their privacy,I do pry

But I would rather turn a deaf ear
Than to hear to words to fear
I marvel at their silent cheer
As I seek to draw near

I would rather go dumb
Than say words to make you numb
I watch my talk and chew gum
As I seek  to hurt none
